Those are pretty little cards. Curious to see what is going to happen with them!

Tune back in on Tuesday for all the fun.

Oooh! I like the bottom set of cards. are they the other side? Did you do them?
January 30th, 2011 05:35 pm (UTC)
Yes, I made them. That's the front and back of the cards with something blocked out that I'll show on Tuesday.

I started with those subscription cards that fall out of magazines, plus some craft paint I wanted to use up since I've converted to Golden Paints.

What a great idea. I tear them out and throw them away. You turn them into beauty! Do you paint over the printing??

Thanks! What happened was that I was going through a ton of magazines, cutting out collage elements and I kept getting these cards and they just looked like I should be able to use them for something. :)

I painted over one side, the ones that don't have the doodles. Then on the other side I had some leftover construction paper that I glued on so I could doodle. I didn't do a good job on the gluing so there are wrinkles but that's okay.

Then I practiced my doodling. Some came out nice and some I just scribbled some color on to break up the big expanse of yellow. This has been a lesson in letting go of my perfectionism because some of them really are blah and blecky. So a good lesson to me.

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
